[mythtv-users] Lost Swap space

I had a problem last night with my FE and had to drop into single user mode
during boot to fsck all the partitions. Everything came back ok, except for
the swap. I know you don't fsck the swap, so I checked with "swapon -s"
which reported that I had no swap. Then I looked in /etc/fstab and found
that, as usual for Fedora Core 6, the swap is referenced by label. I fired
up qtparted and looked at the partition and it appears to have lost it's
label. I quit qtparted and edited /etc/fstab to comment out the existing
swap line and create a copy that references the drive directly as /dev/hda2
and rebooted, but no joy. System works fine, except it has no swap space.
What suggestions can anyone provide for re-enabling the swap?
